The Verdict

Marples No. M153 Review By: I.Ball

Manufacturer: Marples

Tool Type: Wood Carving Tools

Model No: M153

William Marples produced a range of wood carving tools under their 'Shamrock' brand up until 1965 (according to my studies so far - this date may change as I research further), this set I believe was made after 1965 (there are no Shamrock markings).

The Marples M153 carving tool set was a six piece set with small carving tools in which was marketed as a beginner carving tool set.

Each of the carving tools were fitted with a polished finished boxwood handle with the Marples logo.

The handles were finished with steel ferrules.

The blades were forged from the best quality cast steel which were accurately ground to a good profiled edge.

The Marples number M153 set consisted of the following tools:

1 x 7mm skew chisel
1 x 5mm curved vee tool
1 x 8mm curved chisel
1 x 8mm chisel
1 x 6mm straight gouge
1 x 9mm curved shallow gouge

This set was presented in a blue cardboard box with a photo-printed lid displaying Marples carving tools and detailing the core details of the set. The insert of the box was blue.

This set was also produced with Mahogany handles, please see the Marples Mahogany Carving Set - Six Piece Review.
